A Child at Play

Playing1

In the early morning hours, play begins and fun runs all day.

The sun shines when it is cloudy and worry lies in the parent’s arms.

Rhymes flow and rhythm sings a sweetness in a child’s ear when books are read and stories are told.

The setting sun is a dimming one but in a child’s eye, it is a fairy tale about to begin.

In the early morning hours, play goes on and fun runs all day.

The sun shines when it is cloudy and worry lies in the parent’s arms.

The setting sun is a dimming one but in a child’s eye, it is a fairy tale about to begin.
